2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Touchscreen tends to attract fingerprints
  • Coolpad's custom CoolUI 6.0 skin over Android is decent but lacks polish
  • Camera is decent, and almost at par with the more expensive Redmi Note 3, but still could have been better, especially with low light performance
  • Loudspeaker volume could have been better
